Do you have an amusing, sad, moving, informative or cautionary story about any aspect of visiting or living in France?
Perhaps your mixed feelings about finally leaving home to live permanently in France or the vexed problem of a border dispute with neighbours; the fun of making new friends or the trauma of repairing a leaking tap at 3:00 am.
If you have a France-related anecdote to tell then why not consider sharing it with The ‘Sharing France’ Project, a collaborative effort among Francophiles geared towards providing information in an interesting way?
The project can be found at:
The project has been started with the aim of collecting together first-hand experiences – of visiting, living in or working in France – and publishing them, in electronic book form, for the enjoyment of Francophiles everywhere. To make the project more fun there will be prizes for the best entries.
Anyone can contribute – you don’t have to be a Mark Twain or a Jane Austen – and there are no pre-conditions about length, style, or content. This is not a writing competition but an information gathering project. If your story is interesting then come and share it with interested people!
Full credit will be given to all contributors – except those who desire anonymity – and Francophiles everywhere will be able to download the finished compilation direct to their PC.
Full details (including submission procedures) available at the above link. A range of entertaining, funny tales already posted!0
